Kandinsky und der Blaue Reiter. Sauersches Malerbuch-Unikat. Buchmalerei in der Bildenden Kunst des 21. Jahrhunderts
Gabriele Münter (19 February 1877– 19 May 1962) was a German expressionist painter who was at the forefront of the Munich avant-garde in the early 20th century. Artists and writers associated with German Expressionism shared a rebellious attitude (influenced by the writings of Friedrich Nietzsche) toward the materialism and mores of German imperial and bourgeois society. German Expressionistic art was an exegetic (and at times agonizing) reaction against the ambiguities and formalism of pre-World War I society. Its radical art and avant-garde mentality sought to end the alienation of painting from society.
